Labour MP Yeo Wan Ling’s role in the NTUC allows her to work on protecting women's livelihoods as well as supporting their careers.
As women in Singapore continue to face challenges at home, at work and in the community, they need a helping hand when it comes to exploring new career options, seeking support, forming alliances and more. Now, the PAP has been a champion for women since the beginning. Over the decades, the Government has consistently pursued policies that have enabled women to make strong progress.
The Unions have also been supporting and representing women in the workplace over the decades. In 1973, the NTUC set up a Women’s Committee. Through the Unions and the work of women unionists, the statuses of women in the workforce were uplifted and women’s participation in the Labour Movement increased.
